This 1967 Buick GS 400 gives you the style of a sharp-looking
classic hardtop that carries all the best from a premium brand like
Buick, right down to the A/C interior. But because this is also a
true muscle car hero, its numbers matching V8 engine has been
upgraded with fuel-injection, a strong rear suspension, and
four-wheel disc brakes. So when you demand style and power in one
stand-out package, you know you've found it here.
Built on the same GM platform that brought us the Chevelle, Buick's
Grand Sport just feels like it's a bit more sophisticated. That's
especially true for this one finished in Burgundy Mist Metallic.
It's the factory-correct color, but it has a bright and smooth
finish that tells you there was an investment in a quality respray
later in life. Buick had done away with gratuitous chrome on their
GS-cars. This makes the well-integrated bumpers and iconic fender
slashes impressive standout styling elements. And less brightwork
also lets you appreciate the creased sheet metal that shows off the
sharply pointed front end. But what really sets this coupe apart
are the sporting touches, such as the dual hood scoops, proper Gran
Sport badging, aggressive red line in the grille, and a nice set of
GM rally wheels with raised white letter tires.
The black vinyl roof looks good against the deep burgundy paint,
and it also gives you a preview of the full black interior. There
are terrific details, like the smooth dash pad, GS400 door panels,
working dome lights, and refreshed upholstery done in the classic
Buick pattern. This one is meant to be a driver's car inside and
out, and that often means the right condition where you feel at
ease enjoying it out on the road. And part of that attitude also
means good driving features. It includes stock items like the Buick
three-spoke sports steering wheel and a center console with floor
shifter. This also has nice upgrades like the FiTech controller.
And the air conditioning is now blowing cold with modern R134a
refrigerant, which makes it so nice to roll down all the windows on
this pillarless hardtop and go for a drive.
Under the hood, this car proudly shows off its original numbers
matching 400 cubic-inch powerplant. But as you take a closer look,
you'll spot some cool upgrades, like an Edelbrock intake and a
newer aluminum radiator (electric fans also come with the sale.)
Best of all, this is now topped with electronic fuel injection for
the best in power and consistency. It's a strong powerhouse, and so
you have some great features to really enjoy it. This includes
boxed rear suspension arms, a thick rear sway bar, and four-wheel
power disc brakes. And because this is a Buick, it also knows how
to be an easy cruiser with features like power steering and a
three-speed automatic transmission.
The sale comes with the original warranty card and the owner's
manual. This is a terrific way to get vintage style and all the
best driver upgrades. So if you love a premium and powerful Buick,
